Are there any truck stops near you?

That's typically where they locate CB Radio shops that are worth a darn.

There are actual CB shops, for truckers......Walmart sells a small cobra, if your just wanting something for car to car, or less than a 5 mile radius...then just get a small cobra 40 channel CB and a nice wilson magnetic mount antenna....But you can end up spending tons of money on just a CB ...
